Here is what people saying are about Family Law Now LIVE

I like the ability to ask questions and have them answered throughout the presentation and I enjoy the friendliness of the presenters.

Laid back and professional at the same time, hit all the high notes and stressed the important parts.

Often a reminder of things I already know, but I always take away something new from the webinars. It’s great that they are free too and I like the short format.”

“Thank you for your presentations! A review of recent case law is always helpful. I also enjoyed the slide show.”

“Very helpful and informative. More useful and practical than most CPD courses.”

“As always very informative and up-to-date information. As a law clerk I truly enjoy listening to you all and learn as much as I can.”

“Thank you so much! It’s a great way to reach out and learn important facts about family matters, especially during the pandemic time. More power to your amazing team!”
